Lead application Adaptive edge AI systems for industrial application

Based on our research, it will be possible to integrate artificial intelligence directly into the sensor and thus derive decisions in real time without detouring via the cloud. The automated adaptation to new environmental conditions can open up versatile fields of application.

These solutions can be used to detect fault conditions or wear directly in the process or to implement measurement systems for maintenance that enable direct evaluation based on the sensor data. This makes an active contribution to the conservation of resources (computing time, communication overhead).

Core topic

Embedded AI

The numerous existing AI algorithms and methods for high-performance computing are unsuitable for embedded systems. We are researching to optimise AI algorithms and methods so that they can be used on embedded systems.

Core topic

Real-time data processing and communications

New hardware is usually not supported by operating systems for real-time tasks. We are researching which operating system can be implemented in which way for which real-time application and the hardware required there.

Research field

Smart distributed measurement and test systems

Integrated sensor ICs are the heart of sensor and measurement systems like wireless sensors, stationary or handheld devices. We are researching solutions for ever more powerful sensors with more intrinsic intelligence and task allocation in the network.
